Turning your House into a Home
Moving into a new home is such an exciting process. Redecorating, remodeling and transforming the house into your own is a unique experience that new homeowners live for. Especially after renting or coming from an already complete home. The process of turning the new house into a home is one you’ll surely remember.
5 Tips for Falling in Love with your Home
But what happens after all the redecorating is done and the fresh “newness” of the home wears off? If you’re finding that you’re slowly falling out of love with your home, here are six ways to help you rekindle the romance.
1. Rearrange the Furniture
Don’t have the budget to remodel? Don’t let that stop you from making some changes. Rearranging your furniture is a wallet-friendly way to change the layout of a room without having to buy anything new. It’ll also challenge you to redecorate and find new ways to enjoy the existing space.
2. Add Some New Landscaping
Potted plants both indoors and out are an easy way to spruce up a room, backyard or entry way. They’re also a low maintenance addition to your home and if chosen correctly, certain indoor plants, like aloe, can improve your air quality by acting as a natural air filtration system.
3. Declutter and Reorganize
After a few years living in a home, clutter is something that naturally forms, both in closets and storage spaces. Take some time to clean out your closets and garage to get rid of things you no longer use. Decluttering is a great stress reliever and reorganizing will help you feel like you’re utilizing your space better too.
4. Deep Clean
Spring cleaning is right around the corner. What better way to show your home some love than by giving it a full deep clean? Whether you hire an outside cleaning company, or do it yourself, investing in the cleanliness of every corner of your home will definitely help to rekindle your appreciation for your baseboards, windows, cabinets and floors. It’s the little things that count.
5. Give a Room a Mini-Makeover
Another budget friendly option for revamping your existing living space. Rather than invest in a new kitchen or bathroom, which can cost thousands of dollars, consider replacing your cabinet hardware or investing in a new coat of paint. Small changes can make a big difference. Even something as little as buying some new bathroom décor could drastically change how you feel about your guest bathroom.
